Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Her politics are libertarian/conspiracy and she's fixed on Geithner/GS as the axis of evil. The fact that e.g. DB was a bigger player in the US mortgage mess in key years than GS or that Geithner's team ruthlessly slashed bondholders to protect GM/Chrysler or that the approach taken by Geithner/Bernanke to the crisis required far less of a taxpayer hit than the ones Yves advocated - or the ones taken by the European central bank are facts that conflict with her stupid narrative.

I find proposed explanations of this crisis that are based on character defects and alleged criminality to be a lot less plausible than ones that are based on who makes money and whose interests are at stake.
